Easiest fix might be that you have something tall that is up against the door and obstructs the soap dispenser from doing its job. Take a look at that first before tearing into it. Hope this helps ya.

Detergent is still full after 5 washings. I ran it through several cycles and purchased powder to run it and it still will not work

What? The soap lid won't open, or the soap won't dissolve? If the lid is opening, but the soap won't dissolve, then you're not getting proper water flow. Check your wash arms for clogged holes. The other thing to check is the sump area for a clogged food trap or clogged or broken chopper. You might be able to find a video on YouTube that shows you how to do this, otherwise, you should call a professional dishwasher repairman.

I have a kitchenaid dishwasher that doesn't dissolve even liquid soap. At the end of the cycle there is hard compacted soap residue that ends up blocking the holes where the water shoots out and there are...

Try getting some calcium, lime and rust remover. Follow the instructions on the bottle and run the dishwasher empty using only the CLR. Check your incoming water lines for calcium or lime build up.

Soap doesn't dissolve

Possible problems:

1. Too much soap! For soft water use no more than 1 1/2 tablespoons.
Give dishes a good scrape and put them in. If you MUST prerinse dishes (and you shouldn't) drop down to about 1 TSP soap. Modern DW's use less water and soap is more concentrated.

2. Water not hot enough. Test water temp at kitchen faucet with thermometer. It should read at least 120 deg.

3. Our service guys recommend not using lipuid soap, only powder. I listen to them.

4. Broken control to soap door. If it is still closed after a cycle, ask for help from a service company.

GE Nautilus Soap does not dissolve

What is happening, is that your dishes are washing dry. Start the dishwasher and slowly turn the timer till it starts to fill. Let it go and see how they are after

Soap does not seem to dissolve or clean

Probably a sticky dispenser door. Run for a few times with the dispenser open and put a tablet in the cultery basket
